Dan Kwaku Yeboah, the head of sports at Despite Media, has revealed that he sold newspapers to pay for his senior high school education.
He shared a single room with his senior brother at Swedru Secondary School, where he studied Agricultural Science, and sometimes went a whole day without eating.
Yeboah revealed in a YouTube video on his Dan Kwaku Yeboah TV that he lived primarily with his senior brother after being ejected from his father’s home.
His stepmother, he claims, was the reason he was on the verge of being homeless.
When Yeboah graduated from Swedru Senior High School, he faced yet another financial challenge and was on the verge of losing his chance to continue his study.
Against the odds, He was accepted to the University of Cape Coast (UCC) where he studied Agriculture after beating the odds.
Hon Kojo Acquah Yankah, a former Member of Parliament in Ghana and Minister of State in the Rawlings government, financed Yeboah’s admission and tuition costs from the first to the last year, according to Yeboah.
